contemporary flatweave, original paintings, bold collaborative designs, soulful processes
This is the Martinez Studio in picturesque Door County, Wisconsin, home to Wence Martinez’s masterful flatweave tapestries, hand-woven on walking floor looms using hand-spun, hand-dyed wool that sings with vibrant vegetal and Swiss aniline dyes. This working studio and gallery also is home to Sandra Martinez’s wearable art and her striking paintings on paper, inspiration for the couple’s collaborative flatweave work.
Explore the unique marriage of Wence’s pattern-driven weavings and Sandra’s signature glyphs ~ and discover how each piece evokes the intimate, deeply creative environment in which it came to life. Welcome to the Martinez Studio.
When the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan asks for your work, give them whatever they want, then do a little victory dance grateful they know you exist! Two of our favorite pieces hanging at ARTspace at the Shops at Woodlake, Kohler, the satellite gallery of JMKAC. The One & Only Show runs now through January 5, 2014. Your purchase supports an amazing organization besides the artists, naturally.
